New Process to Add Degrees to Your Record

Posted on Updated on

Thanks to the Detailers for sending me this update. Below and in the just updated Promo Prep are the new procedures for adding degrees to your record:

To have your formal education updated, the official transcripts must come directly from the school to the office below. They can be delivered electronically as long as the school uses a secure delivery system such as eScript/Parchment to JST@DODED.MIL or they can be mailed to:

JST Ops Center
6490 Saufley Field Road
Pensacola, Florida 32509

Before sending the transcripts, you must contact the Joint Services Transcript Operations Center (JST OPS) at JST@DODED.MIL, advising them that you are having an official transcript mailed to them directly from the academic institution for the purpose of adding it to your Joint Services Transcript (JST). You are to provide your name, last four of your SSN, and either your e-mail or phone number so that they can reach you should there be any questions.

To see if the degrees have been added, please check the ACADEMIC page or the INQUIRIES tab on the JST website before contacting the office to see if the degree has been added. Please wait a minimum of 10 business days before contacting the JST office to see if they have received the degree.

The JST website can be found at

    Thank you as always for the great and timely information. If one has previous degrees which already appear in their OSR, is there a benefit to then also submitting those to JST?

      I don’t think so. None of my degrees are in there and they all show up on my OSR. I think you only add them if they are not already there.

    Thank you for this update. I sent transcripts the old way about two months ago. I am waiting to hear back from the ODC contact at PERS via email regrading if the transcripts were received. Would you recommend I wait longer to hear back or resend the transcripts via the new system?

      Are they on your OSR yet? If not, I’d re-send them via the new way as 2 months seems long enough that they should have shown up by now. As a backup, you can always send them to the board as an attachment to a letter. It won’t fix it permanently, but it gets it right for that board.
